Making Our Way Home: The Great Migration and the Black American DreamMaking Our Way Home: The Great Migration and the Black American Dream by Blair Imani. This covers from 1865 through 1979 and I found it very helpful for helping me understand more how things got to where they are. I wish it would’ve included a few more recent decades, tbh. Great illustrations!


*IGNORING* -Mayhem

Mostly doomsurfing, but I’ve read some fanfic – and even some new fanfic (vs rereading, which I have been doing A LOT).


“If I don’t make eye contact, Mom won’t remove me from this kitty perch she claims is a ‘paper trimmer’!” -Mayhem, incorrectly

Linkity is committed to learning to be a better ally

A few lighter things at the beginning and end, but the middle is fierce.


Cats on my purple cat sheets, right underneath the ceiling fan!

It’s going to be a rollicking ride here, folks. Hold on to yer hats. Which you’re probably already doing, because this has been A Week. Heavier stuff down toward the end.


“I’m not sure why you say this is a ‘paper trimmer’, Mom, when it’s obviously a cat perch!” -Mayhem

Linkity laments

Things are darker and sadder here in Minneapolis this week and because my heart is pretty heavy (but we are safe), this will be one of those whirlwind type linkities.


“Sun warm. Basket comfortable. Life good.” -Mayhem

Mayhem turned 14 on Wednesday! 😮

Print Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques and Truly Original ProjectsPrint Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques and Truly Original Projects by Christine Schmidt. Interesting and wide-ranging projects, from using linoleum blocks to screenprinting to cyanotypes. Unfortunately, the book is a decade old, and some of the specialized materials don’t seem to be available anymore.


“Why doesn’t Mom ever go anywhere anymore?! It’s kind of creepy.” -Mayhem

Brave EnoughBrave Enough by Cheryl Strayed. Ok collection of quotes that was pretty disappointing, based on the quotes I’d read from Tiny Beautiful Things.


“I’ll just let you wonder if my eye are really looking in two different directions…” -Mayhem

The Best of Connie Willis: Award-Winning StoriesThe Best of Connie Willis: Award-Winning Stories by Connie Willis. What it says on the tin, plus a couple of rather good award acceptance speeches.
Cartwheel in the Quiet: A Tapestry of Things Found + FeltCartwheel in the Quiet: A Tapestry of Things Found + Felt by Emily Looman. Lovely little snippet of the author/artist’s life – a path to healing told in art and scribbled words.

Here we go – wheeeeee!

Reading Update
Terra Incognita: Three NovellasTerra Incognita: Three Novellas by Connie Willis. I’d read these before in different collections, but I didn’t remember/realize that until partway through each story and I enjoyed reading them again, so!
Funny, You Don't Look Autistic: A Comedian's Guide to Life on the SpectrumFunny, You Don’t Look Autistic: A Comedian’s Guide to Life on the Spectrum by Michael McCreary. DNF – humor is one of those subjective things and this grated. My autistic experience is so different from his, I can’t even…
A Field Guide to Now: Notes on Mindfulness and Life in the Present TenseField Guide to Now: Notes On Mindfulness And Life In The Present Tense by Christina Rosalie. DNF – I love the title, but this was another one I absolutely could not relate to.


“What are you doing, Mom!? Why did you wake me up????” -Mayhem

(I didn’t MEAN to wake her up…)
